Hoda Afshar: Under Western Eyes Past

Saturday, May 3, 2014 - Melbourne, Australia

Hoda Afshar’s series "Under Western Eyes" comprises digitally manipulated photographs that are designed to shift the conversation around the representation of Islamic women as subjugated and suppressed. Afshar, who is originally from Iran now lives in Melbourne where she is a practicing photographic artist.

Afshar believes "Veiled women are often described as a homogeneous group and mostly pictured as powerless subjects with their veil either symbolizing oppression or an exotic commodity. If you look closely at the art world, you'll notice that in the past few decades, the images of women in the veil have been regularly appearing in contemporary art exhibitions. Most are held in the famous metropolitan centres of the West - London, New York and Paris - typically showing Islamic women as an identical group of victims".
